Dog running fields compatible with green belt designation

The change of use of agricultural land near Glasgow to accommodate three dog running fields was an appropriate recreational use in the green belt, a reporter held.

The scheme involved erecting fencing to separate the three runs, along with a car park for 12 vehicles. Three timber shelters would also be erected and the reporter decided that these elements were consistent with the need for a countryside location. The development would be sited away from residential properties and the land had no biodiversity or landscape significance. Restrictions on the hours of use of the scheme would maintain the amenity of local residents.
